Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Drifted away from you mother’s pray’rs,
Drifted away, thinking no one cares;
Jesus is calling, while mercy spares,
His love reaches down to you.

Refrain:
His love reaches down to you,
His love reaches down to you,
O be not dismayed,
Tho’ far you have strayed,
His love reaches down to you.

2 Hasten and turn from the world away,
Turn from the things that hold you and me;
Only believe it and you shall see,
His love reaches down to you. [Refrain]

3 Love, so unmeasured, so full and free,
Flows like a river for you and me;
Only believe it and you shall see,
His love reaches down to you. [Refrain]

4 Shadows are gathering, night is near,
Why do you linger in doubt and fear?
List to the message so full of cheer,
His love reaches down to you. [Refrain]
